Making Techniques Grapes were hand-harvested and carried to the winery in 400kg plastic bins. Cluster selection and fruit destemming were performed. Fermentation was carried out in 7,000-litre oak casks. The varieties of this blend were made separately and after 6 months aged in barrels, the barrels were emptied and the blend was made, which came back to the oak barrels in order to finish its ageing process. The total ageing time was 16 months.
